Background on Plant

The two existing coal-fired units of Guigang power station, totaling 1,200 MW, were brought online in 2007. [1][2]The plant is owned by China Huadian.[3]

Description of Expansion

Huadian was planning to build two additional coal-fired units at this plant, with a total planned capacity of 1,320 MW.[4][5][6]

However, there have been no developments on the units since 2013, and they appear to be abandoned.

2016: Nationwide Restrictions Imposed on Development of Coal-Fired Power Capacity

Due to new restrictions announced during 2016 by the National Energy Administration and the National Development and Reform Commission, further capacity expansions at this location appear to be on hold or cancelled.
